A beginner friendly low-impact gym is coming to HMC Sheridan campus!
That’s right! A low-impact beginner friendly gym is coming soon to Sheridan PSB Fitness.
Now that we’ve been moved to remote learning, working out (or even moving from our desks!) have become less of a priority. Even worse, because we’re not moving as much, focusing and staying awake during class is harder now than ever before!
Now that you think about it, I bet you’re starting to notice it: the sore muscles, back pain and strained eyes from working at the computer all day.
No need to worry any longer!
Did you know there’s a simple, relaxing and low-impact workout that can improve your muscle tension and relieve stress? It’s called Yoga and Pilates, and it’s coming soon to Sheridan college at the HMC and Davis campuses.
